My self-summary
Equal parts musician and businessman, soul seeker and shenanigans. Let's dance at shows, bike the wissahickon, hike thru the redwoods, take mind altering substances, and build an empire...
What I’m doing with my life
Helping people become more creative, connected and inspired. Making music. Listening to podcasts. Reading books.
I’m really good at
Riding bikes, singing harmonies, scratching that travel itch, finding the restaurant we're going to tonight, meeting new people.
The first things people usually notice about me
Green eyes
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Anything with a hook into my heart/brain, i.e. Salinger, Garcia-Marquez, Safran Foer, Zadie Smith, Salman Rushdie, Junot Diaz, Jonathan Lethem/Franzen, Teju Cole, Julie Orttinger, long but super interesting articles in the New Yorker, Economist, etc.

Anything with soul, i.e. Amy Winehouse. John Legend, Nas/Damian Marley, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Aretha Franklin, Blackstar, Kanye (yeah I said it!), Marvin Gaye, Radiohead, Phoenix, Andrew Bird, The Band, Van Morrison, Esbjorn Svensson Trio (jazzy soul), Paul Simon, etc.

Anything on netflix, showtime or hbo, i.e. Game of Thrones, Homeland, Dexter. I don't often watch tv, but when I do (think dos equis guy), I watch an entire series over a few weeks, staying up till 5am, adrenaline pumping, like oh my god will happen next-style, until the series is over or I'm completely sleep deprived. Either way, #winning.

Anything spicy, authentic, or with booze on tap i.e. Tomoe, Lupa, Momofuku Ssam, Rosemary's, Cafe Orlin, Mission Chinese, Barbossa, anyplace with arepas, anyplace in flushing, or you tell me!
Six things I could never do without
friends who are like fam
a guitar
a bicycle
a basketball court nearby
a mindfulness/meditation practice
I spend a lot of time thinking about
art and food.

also, how to connect people that should know and/or work with each other, but just don't know it yet.
On a typical Friday night I am
out to a great restaurant, then hanging out with friends or making new ones, at a bar, danceparty, or someone's place...
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
i recently spent a night at a nudist hippie commune with hot springs during a road trip from colorado down to new mexico. Highlight: playing naked uno in a soaking pool as the sunset, with waterproof cards. For the record, i was kicking (naked) ass.
You should message me if
you can have a compelling conversation about taste: books, music, food, cities, whatever! I like people who know what they like and can teach me new things!
The two of us
